Trent Brown injury: Latest update on Patriots OT is encouraging

Patriots

The New England Patriots lost starting right tackle Trent Brown early in the first quarter of Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Brown was sidelined with a calf injury after playing just seven snaps and didn't return. Justin Herron saw time at right tackle after Brown exited, but the second-year offensive lineman struggled and was eventually replaced by Yasir Durant.

The injury to Brown is a concern for the Patriots, not only because he's a very good player, but he also missed multiple games for the Las Vegas Raiders last season due to a calf issue.

Luckily for the Patriots, the latest update on Brown's status is a positive one. Here's what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday afternoon:

We'll learn more about Brown's status later in the week. The first Week 2 injury report will come out Wednesday. 

The Patriots are scheduled to play the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
